An impressive blow by blow account of a salvage diver.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Goldfinder: A True Story of One Man's Discovery of the Ocean's Richest Secrets (Hardcover)
Goldfinger is an impressive story which chronicles Keith Jessops experiences over a lifetime of salvage diving. It appeals in one sense because of the diving situations which he seems to regularly get himself into and with which divers can empathise, but on another level it also appeals as a story about 'the boy from a rough neighborhood does good'. His defining goal is to raise HMS Edinburgh which sailed from Russia with over $100 million dollars of Russian gold and was sunk by a German U-boat. Through a series of close scrapes and exceptionally hard graft he gets very close and the end of the story is an interesting, but disappointing one. I am a diving instructor and I loved it. Read it!
